Do you remember as a teen when you got a blemish on your face? You know what I mean... a pimple... a zit. And didn't it feel like it encompassed your entire face, and everyone was staring at it?
Meet the "zit" on our farm - our barn.
Don't misunderstand - I love our "zit". I mean, aren't these old hip roofed barns part of scenic rural living? Plus we are all about preserving the history of our farm, and this is one of the few original buildings we have left.
But how can we repair this blemish on the face of our farm?
After years of repeatedly scraping and painting, it was time for a real facelift. After much research we finally found the right guys to do the job.
The building supplies were delivered and the heavy equipment rolled into Bremer Farms in October. The project was taking shape, but then winter began and cold, snow, and ice halted the progress. Oh, pooh!
Our blemish started to fade again in March when the crew returned and within a few weeks our project was complete!
We are thrilled with how our "new" old barn looks!
The cows like it too. Our "zit" is gone!
